25 minutes for a thin NY steak????

These are thicker than usual...a full 1" raw...not those "thin as shoe leather" things some places sell...
 
Started off real hot with all 3 burners going, slapped the meat over the middle burner to "mark" the meat, then turned the middle burner down and lowers the hood to give it a bit of baking action (hood thermometer of dubious accuracy said it was 450*)...
 
When the hood is down I can still look inside by looking through the rear vent slots to monitor the process and see how close I am to either perfection, or ruin...
 
You can see in the 1st photo the fat marbling has been rendered...
 
And in the 2nd photo it didn't take much of a "resting period" for the juices to start running...
 
I was to busy eating to snap a picture of the slightly pink inside...but it was a perfect medium rare to medium well done...
 
I've spent this summer getting myself "dialed in" to this grill...and so far I haven't ruined anything too bad...heh heh...(mostly amazingly good)...it's still an experiment and I have yet to try out the rotisserie option on this grill...
We're having a very unusual dry December here in North and Central California, and this is the only reason I'm still able to grill...

        I take it you're having 2 servings of each?

          I'm doing the crab-stuffed chicken breasts again. With...some vegetables...I have no idea. Maybe a salad.

            What's for dinner tonight? Well, here it'll be the Feast of the Two (shell) Fishes.
             
            For some reason, while attempting to buy some king crab at Costco, lleechef kept fighting me as to the number of legs to buy. Little did I know there was a method to her madness.
            Turns out, there was a delivery for her from FedEx after we got home, and I'm told to leave the room.Shortly thereafter I'm called back into the room where there's a Christmas-wrapped package on my chair, and orders to go ahead and open it.
             
            Dinner tonight will be a pair of two-pound lobsters shipped overnight from the Commercial Lobster Company of Boston, along with half the fifty bucks worth of king crab.
             
            And here I wanted to go to the Waffle House.

                  I made a variation of what I call pantry stew. Ground beef, onion, green pepper, can of corn, can of kidney beans, can of red beans, can of black beans, huge can of crushed tomatoes, can of tomato sauce, bunch of Cajun Power garlic sauce, some Tabasco, parsley, oregano, basil, thyme, and garlic powder. Served with grated cheese on top.

                    Glad to hear that everyone is eating well. 
                     
                    My plan is to make Chicken Picata tonight but I just ate that fruitcake.  Maybe in a couple of hours.

                        Fruitcake...????
                         
                        I guess it would be silly to even ask if those things come with an expiration date on them, huh...???
                         
                        Did it come with a label that said "Made with ingrediants of unknown origin"...???
                         
                        Was there a bio-hazard logo on the label...???
                         
                        Will we need to call the Haz-Mat folks to check in on you...???

                          Santa will not be happy...maybe if I put some chocolate syrup in his milk it will be ok...
                           
                          How on earth could I forget cookies for Santa...???

                            I made the Chicken Piccata tonight. 
                             
                            I'm really loving the Montebello Capellini that cooks in just three minutes.

                              After an early afternoon of appetizer buffet grazing that culminated in a nice roast beef sandwich, what I had for dinner tonight was...not a darn thing!

                                Marvelous roast turkley, stuffing, mashed potatoes, mashed rutabaga, beyond-belief gravy, cranberry sauce, and a perfect pinot noir.
                                 
                                And just a few moments ago, a turkey sandwich on white bread with mayonnaise, stuffing and cranberry sauce.

                                    I'm really kinda loving that there are only two of us for major holiday meals. It means I can spend more on better food because I don't have to make as much.  Our Christmas dinner this year: roast leg of lamb, red potatoes with garlic and parsley, lime-infused asparagus spears, Grandma Unrath salad (that's what it's called in my family, as it's the one Grandma Unrath always made), and Grands honey butter biscuits. Dessert is a pumpkin spice cake frosted with pumpkin pie cream cheese spread (and decorated with hollyberry sprinkles to be festive).

                                        Earlier this afternoon I smoked a couple of beef shanks for about an hour and then threw them in the soup pot.  Early quality control checks point to a successful outcome.

                                          Leftovers from yesterday, sans the biscuits and dessert. Turns out the lamb is even better when reheated, which is rarely the case with meat. I'm really glad to have added it to my repertoire.

                                              Black bean nachos and salsa tonight. Was jonesing for something simple and spicy after all of the savory, rich food I consumed over the holiday. I love ham and turkey, but it'll be a month or so before I can look at another one of either.

                                                I did what I call Corned Beef Boiled Dinner. Because it's neither corned beef and cabbage nor New England Boiled Dinner, but a combination of the two. Corned beef, cabbage, onions, carrots, red potatoes and turnips.

                                                            We did some chicken wings on the grill and put a frozen supreme pizza in the oven.   It was okay for Friday night - we're tired and ready to get rested  for another three day weekend of cooking and football.
